Watch Battlefield 5’s E3 2018 trailer from EA’s event

The move to add a Battle Royale mode to the beloved "Battlefield" franchise was divisive among fans when EA announced it on Saturday afternoon at its annual "EA Play" event in Los Angeles.

It was reiterated that Battlefield V will not include a premium pass program that the previous installments offered, and its release date is set for October 19, 2018. But seriously, six minutes for a battle royale announcement. It's likely we'll see a whole host of additional videos making their way out following the wrap-up of EA Play 2018, which attracted a massive crowd to get in and see the new selection of games coming from the company this year.

It's "Royale re-imagined for Battlefield" with destruction, teamplay and other "pillars" of Battlefield, and it'll come after launch. We're going to be providing live coverage of every major PC-relevant conference, plus previews of all the biggest games straight from the show floor, including hands-on impressions and interviews with the developers who made them.

The battle royale format mode will be called "Royale", although no further details were revealed during conference.
